    PSU not looking after the welfare of youth? BAU.

    Right now, it's He said, She said ...

    As long as Franklin keeps winning, any negative happenings will quietly be swept under the rug ...

    Sounds like a passed lie detector test was involved, FWIW. (Backing up the claims)

    I might be mis-remembering, but wasn't there a hazing scandal when he left Vanderbilt, too? Or something along those lines?

    Penn State lawsuit snippet: the lawsuit also named Micah Parsons, Yetur Gross-Matos and Jesse Luketa as "ringleaders of the alleged abuse" and stated the hazing included players saying "I'm going to Sandusky you"

    If the NCAA had any balls, this wouldn't be a problem because PSU still wouldn't have a football program.

    oh, he's a disgusting human being, and the Vanderbilt scandal was over a rape, not a hazing.

    I’m sure Penn State fans will show up to tell us this is all unproven, and that nothing like this ever happened.

    This was all investigated by police last fall and no evidence was found to press charges.

    Hi Mrs Screw :)

    Just wanted to say hi and tell ya I think of you when I see the success of the Rutgers men's and women's basketball teams.

    Also, Iowa fans will forever love C Vivian Stringer, who put Iowa women's basketball on the map. What an incredible woman.

    There is enough smoke around Franklin to know he’s a slime ball. The 2012 interview about only hiring coaches with hot wives. The Vanderbilt post-rape victim meeting. The accusations by medical doctors that he leveraged them to clear injured players. This hazing thing. That’s a lot smoke in 7 or 8 years.

    Shock State College PD didn't find enough evidence to press charges against members of the football program. Again......

    Penn state cops go to the same police academy that Florida state cops go to.

    Still don’t know why they weren’t kicked out of the Big Ten after the Sandusky deal. Kick ‘em the hell out! The tail is still wagging the damn dog!

    I believe the polygraph was given to one of the accused, not the victim.

    ‘with most saying it was just locker-room horseplay, or teammates joking around,‘

    followed by ‘we didn’t really mean it’ ‘he can’t take a joke’
    All stuff that worked 30 years ago, now? Not so much. psu being psu

    If this is true, NCAA should shot down program. They “eased” sanctions last time, but this is worse, since the term “Sandusky” means they knew impact.

    By impact, do you mean coming from behind forcibly colliding, or the other meaning? Just curious as this answer will have an impact on my mental frame of mind today.

    Just because the police couldn't find the evidence necessary to charge somebody with a crime, doesn't mean that what was alleged didn't happen. I can't imagine this kid would go through with this if nothing happened to him. Kind of embarrassing to release the details. We will see soon enough what evidence there is. If it is shown this did happened but the school's investigation said nothing happened, there is going to be a huge outcry against PSU and for good reason because then it looks like another cover up.

    Thing is even before Sandusky case this type of culture had been going on for a long time at Penn St. under Paterno. I remember seeing a piece on these 6 players accused of assault back in 07'. ESPN Outside the Lines a year or so after the incident did a piece on on it as well as PSU football player issues when Paterno stepped in and players got a slap on the wrist and continued to play them after the charges and how to no surprise the DA did nothing again. Ironic thing one of them Anthony Scirritto had a huge PI call on Iowa's game winning FG drive in 08'.
